Received in CanBIF 6 from IronDjinn, thanks man! Nice treat!
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with lots of light sticky, bubbly head which efficiently settles to a tiny layer, leaving a good amount of lace.
Huge hop nose. Lots of citrus (grapefruit, lemon), some pine, weed, something lightly woody.
Taste has tons of hops from start to finish. Fruity at first, some mango backing up the citrus, then a touch of caramel maltiness, finishing with straight up hoppy bitterness, almost to the point of being astringent. Hops still taste fresh and powerful. Overall, a little unbalanced towards the hop side, but I guess that's kinda the point.
Mouthfeel is great, carbonation is on the lower end, which I prefer for most English and American ales. Also results in improves drinkability.
This is a hoppy treat, the likes of which is not easy to find in Canada, especially Ontario, so I'm very grateful for receiving this one.

Julian dating on the 22oz bomber revealed to be from May 20th (so almost 2 months on this by the time I cracked it open and poured it into the tulip glass). Might have wanted it a bit fresher, but that is no news flash. 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head which dissipated quickly and left some nice lacing. Interesting tangerine hue in the light, very tempting. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and bitterness (yes, bitterness... this IS a 102 IBU brew!). Pine notes on the front wave of the taste profile, along with a citrusy (almost lemony) mid-note, with a big bitter finish. Continual carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel, and a slightly oily presence on the back end. This had a nice balance for a big beer, and though I was v. happy... would have to try one that was super fresh to make this a go-to choice.
